Study Engineering and you will have the opportunity to delve into a huge range of disciplines. Become a problem solver, not just learning how to fix things but to develop and invent from the very start.
Following a broad first year of study covering all disciplines within the School, students on this programme will be required to transfer their registration onto one of the following engineering programmes, depending on whether they are on the three or four-year programme.
Discover what you'll learn, what you'll study, and how you'll be taught and assessed.
In week seven of the second semester students take a week long course in Creo, a computer-aided design software.
To provide students with a basic understanding of electronics from first principles covering analogue and electromechanical systems. Basic circuits and theory will be introduced including the use of semiconductor devices such as diodes and transistors. Electromechanics will be developed to provide the student with a fundamental knowledge of the principles of DC and AC machines, transformers and linear actuators
To provide students with a basic understanding of modelling and simulation techniques. Mathematical modelling and graph theory will be introduced to develop practical skills in the modelling and designing of different types of systems including electromechanical systems.
This module introduces fluid mechanics to the First Year Undergradute students, describes the fundamental principles of fluid property, dimension analysis, hydrostatics and hydrodynamics. Students will be able to solve simple engineering problems involves steady fluid flow.
This module introduces students to the basic concepts and principles of elementary statistics and programming. It explains the purposes and advantages of analysing data collected specifically to solve problems in engineering, reviews available software tools and programming languages used to formulate and answer basic engineering questions. It draws on examples from applications across the range of School of Engineering program areas.
MATH198 is a Year 1 mathematics module for students of programmes taught in the School of Engineering, e.g. Aerospace, Civil, Mechanical or Industrial Design Engineering. It is designed to reinforce and build upon A-level mathematics, providing you with the strong background required in your engineering studies and preparing you for the Year 2 mathematics module MATH299 (Mathematics engineering II). In the first semester, the foundations are laid: differential calculus, vector algebra, integration and applications. Semester two covers complex numbers, differential equations, Laplace transformations and functions of two variables
This module provides students with an introduction to mechanical design and the skills required by a professional engineer.
The module is configured around a group design project but is enhanced with lecture material and practical exercises to introduction to mechanical design and the skills required by a professional engineer.
The module is configured around a group design project but is enhanced with lecture material and practical exercises to introduce skills such as technical drawing, data analysis and technical writing.
The majority of these are brought together through their application to the design project that runs alongside them.
This module provides students with a hands on introduction to mechanical design and the skills required by a professional engineer.
The module is configured around a group design project but is enhanced with lecture material and practical exercises to introduce skills such as report writing, oral presentation, computer aided design and the analysis of engineering mechanisms and components.
The majority of these are brought together through their application to the design project that runs alongside them.
This is predominantly a practical module in which students work in small groups to examine in detail the workings and manufacture of a single-cylinder, 4-stroke petrol engine by dismantling it into component parts and documenting the disassembly process in a Wiki.
This module aims to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and theory of how engineering structures work to sustain loads. It will also show how stress analysis leads to the design of safer structures. It will also provide students with the means to analyse and design basic structural elements as used in modern engineering structures.
The module provides an introduction to the laws of thermodynamics which are essential to understanding many branches of engineering. The module will be taught through reference to everyday examples and applications drawn from aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering.
We are leading the UK’s involvement in the international Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) initiative – an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers.
Our degree programmes encompass the development of a holistic, systems approach to engineering. Technical knowledge and skills are complemented by a sound appreciation of the life-cycle processes involved in engineering and an awareness of the ethical, safety, environmental, economic, and social considerations involved in practicing as a professional engineer.
You will be taught through a combination of face-to-face teaching in group lectures, laboratory sessions, tutorials, and seminars. Our programmes include a substantial practical component, with an increasing emphasis on project work as you progress through to the final year. You will be supported throughout by an individual academic adviser.
Assessment takes many forms, each appropriate to the learning outcomes of the particular module studied. The main modes of assessment are coursework and examination. Depending on the modules taken, you may encounter project work, presentations (individual and/or group), and specific tests or tasks focused on solidifying learning outcomes.
We have a distinctive approach to education, the Liverpool Curriculum Framework, which focuses on research-connected teaching, active learning, and authentic assessment to ensure our students graduate as digitally fluent and confident global citizens.
Studying with us means you can tailor your degree to suit you. Here's what is available on this course.
You’ll study in The School of Engineering, which hosts modern, world-class teaching and learning facilities. This includes the Active Learning Laboratories, which feature lab space, manufacturing robots and prototyping facilities so you can learn, build and test. You’ll also have access to high-spec workstations featuring industry-standard engineering software.
I chose engineering because I have always been passionate about the way things work and the method by which systems operate. I have always had more of a pure science background, but I also yearned to see the application of such theory with the tool of mathematics.
